The snowrunner for the Nintendo Switch is an addictive game with lots of fun. The game puts you in the center of a post-apocalyptic world where nature has become a menace. The only way to survive is to run as far as you can, collecting supplies and getting energy to repair your vehicle. The farther you go, the more obstacles you will face and the more resources you will find. You’ll even have a chance to interact with animals and other people.
The critical response for the SnowRunner is well recieved.
The hero you’ll be playing as being named Snowrunner. He was a young boy who survived a flood at his home but thanks to a snow plow, he was trapped outside and had to fend for himself. A girl called Faith came to his rescue and the two became friends. One day, when Faith went missing, Snow Runner had to find her and bring her back to safety before the authorities rounded up everyone who knew her. As a last resort, he hides out in the abandoned building where Faith resides.
The game starts by introducing you to the controls and the environment of the game. As you move, you will hear sounds of traffic and people going about their business. Running past a billboard or a line of cars can cause you to trip or collide with another character or object. If you take too long to make it over a jump or down a hill, you will fall and have to restart from the beginning.
The controls are quite simple and provide for a near-complete gaming experience. Holding the Control Stick in the left or right will make your character run to the right, and rotate the gears either clockwise or counter clockwise. Using the A and B buttons on the console will change your character’s position. Using the R trigger will jump, use the L trigger to slow down, and use the X button to reverse direction.
Some storage space might be needed for this video game.
You will first encounter obstacles on this snowscape, like trees and icy slopes. Once you clear a path, the challenges begin. Your goal is to complete the tracks and reach the end within the time limit. The platform itself moves realistically, and the characters look quite lifelike.
Even though the visuals remain largely the same, everything has been improved upon. There are more snow to melt, as well as new challenges to overcome. Although it is not quite the same as other games, the Switch version is definitely a fun and exciting game to play. Snow Run is a must-try for any snow lover on the platform.
